I guess most of my bags, no matter which I am carrying, are heavy to others. Funny, but I try to never let anyone lift one of my bags off a chair or something so I don't hear the 'heavy' comments. "What do you have in there!!!?"--I shouldn't let it bother me but it does. I have a LP studded hobo and even I think it is heavy but I love it and it sure gets the compliments.
